2001-2010 All-Bears Team: Linebacker #2

As promised, it's Wednesday night, so we'll do the second linebacker poll. Before that of course, a quick check of the prior results from the weekend:

With 86% of the vote, Charles Tillman forced the others to fumble as he takes the #1 Cornerback spot.

And with all of 30% of the vote, Ted Washington stuffed the others' run as he takes the #2 Defensive Tackle position over Anthony Adams, Tank Johnson, and Keith Traylor.

Wow. One completely lopsided, and another closely contested. Now, we look at the linebackers that didn't make the #1 spot, and add a couple to the listing...

Lance BriggsThird-round draft pick in 2003. Seven-year starter, missed only four games in his career. Six-time Pro-Bowler, one-time All-Pro. 10.5 sacks, 12 interceptions with three touchdowns, 60 passes deflected, nine forced fumbles, one fumble recovered for a TD, 705 tackles with 157 assists.

Hunter Hillenmeyer5th-round draft pick of the Packers in 2003, never played a snap for them, joined the right side the same year. Eight-year Bear, played 13 games in every year except 2010 (concussion symptoms). NFLPA representative. Very serviceable starter, filled in at MLB when Urlacher was injured. 7.0 Sacks, two interceptions, six forced fumbles including four in 2009, 289 tackles with 93 assists.

Rosevelt Colvin: Hard to add a fourth after those three each played for eight years plus, but a good linebacker in his own right. Played for the Bears from 1999 to 2002 as a fourth-round draft pick. In 2001 and 2002, played all 32 games with 28 starts. 21 sacks, two interceptions, six fumbles forced, 116 tackles with 18 assists.

And adding to that list we have...

Warrick Holdman: Another fourth-round pick of the Bears in 1999. Left the Bears in 2003 for Cleveland, then from there to Washington, and retired in 2006. Since 2001, has 1.5 sacks, an interception, 12 passes defended, five forced fumbles, and 171 tackles with 42 assists, including his 2001 campaign of 95 tackles with 14 assists.

Nick Roach: Joined the team in 2007 out of Northwestern as an undrafted free agent; started 30 of 48 games he's participated in. Has two sacks, six passes defended, three forced fumbles, and eighty tackles with 35 assists.

Note: When we do the Linebacker #3 poll, I won't be adding any more beyond this unless someone can make a convincing case in the comments.

That being said, if you don't like any of the possible choices (keeping in mind of course Brian Urlacher has already been selected), vote "Other" and tell us who we missed!
